Sony Pictures The Star Releases November 17th

Have you heard of the upcoming movie The Star?  It releases nationwide on November 17th from the producer of Heaven is for Real and Miracles from Heaven (both movies I saw in the theater and enjoyed).  In Sony Pictures Animation's The Star, a small and brave donkey named Bo longs for a life beyond his village mill.  After finding the courage to break free Bo teams up with Ruth, a loveable lost sheep, and Dave, a dove with big aspirations, in a journey of a lifetime.  The friends follow the Star and become heroes in one of the greatest stories ever told.

Check out the official trailer below.

My favorite holiday is Christmas and the story of the first Christmas never gets old for me.  It's pretty amazing!  I love the idea of seeing it through a new perspective, that of the animals.  I'm drawn to animation movies with animals.  Even though he's a donkey, Bo is extremely relatable in his desire for more in life.  I have sometimes wondered what it must have been like for the donkey that bore the pregnant Mary and now audiences everywhere get to watch this adaptation of Bo and all the animals at the first Christmas.  Exciting indeed!

I also really liked the Lyric Video to "Life is Good" by A Great Big World.  I really enjoy inspirational and uplifting music.  Check it out below.

The Star website has some fun resources including an animated coloring book as well as many fun activities including printable diaromas, mazes, connecting the dots, character cards and more!

Remember, this movie premieres in theaters on November 17th.  Check out The Star's website to buy tickets and for more information.  Let me know what you think.

Disclosure:  Thanks so much to Sony and FlyBy for sending me this campaign information.  As part of this campaign I will receive Fandango tickets.  All opinions are 100% my own.
